The Gay Fashion Accessory


Over the last two decades, having a homosexual on your piety bracelet has been the hallmark of progressive fashion.
It is so well established now that it is inconceivable to them that any civilized person would have a contrary opinion on homosexual marriage, homosexual rights and so forth. It is why young males today work so hard to adopt bathhouse fashion, going so far as to get beard transplants so they can look like a young George Michael. The Z Blog › The New Russia

Your Say

Anyone wearing a bracelet like that has earned a punch in the face.

I could look up piety bracelet, but I don't want to.

What the hell is a "piety bracelet"? And why would a progressive be caught dead wearing anything related to piety?

And who the hell is George Michael, and why should I care?

chas, while you and I may agree about the Cliven Bundy crusade, and probably a whole lot of other political stuff, we part ways on punching gays in the face, even though some are asking for it.

I attended the funeral of an 86 y/o "gay" man last year, a Marine who survived Iwo. His exemplary life and unsung heroism would shame most of us. He lost his best friend a few years before. They were forced to live a secret life, that is if they wanted to have a normal existence. Even though I was an enlistee during Vietnam, I'm no hero. That man was.

Shame on you. And on Gerard for continually baiting and bringing out the worst with posts like this. And here I thought Mr. Vanderleun was for same sex marriage, but apparently it must be kept secret and in the closet like by dead Marine friend.

And by the way, in which branch of the military did Gerard Vanderleun serve after leaving UC Berkeley in the 60's? Just wondering.

Frank: I'll let Gerard speak for himself. As for me, I started using the "punch in the face" phrase half in jest and certainly not directed toward any group or people specifically.

I do not like idiots, and the world has many of them: male, female, young, old, queer, straight, white, black so forth. When you read that phrase in some of my comments just think of it as an expression of disapproval. I stopped punching people in the face some time ago.

I served US Army 1966 - 1972 and I didn't punch people in the face back then, I shot them.

Read more closely on these posts by Gerard. This is not about homophobia, but rather, about "activism" ordering us to take a certain attitude towards gayness that most people won't/can't ascribe to. We should be tolerant, and many of us are also accepting. But universal "approval" of the gay lifestyle, especially when normal behavior has been marginalized and vilified is wrong.

Our greatest poet ever was/is Walt Whitman, who was as gay as they come. Your old friend and Whitman are celebrated for what they did as men of distinction and/or valor, not what they did with their dicks.

If you stick your dik in someones septic system you need punched in the face, and I don't give a damn if poseurs agree with that or not. Fuk U.
